What Are Social Skills?

Social skills are the unwritten rules that guide how we interact with others. While most people naturally pick up these skills, individuals with autism may find it challenging to navigate social situations.

In small group social skills therapy, individuals with autism learn through:

  • Direct teaching and practical exercises in real-life situations.

  • Focus on timing and attention in social interactions.

  • Support for better communication and sensory integration.

  • Developing behaviors that lead to positive social outcomes like friendships.
